This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the

This volume is designed to furnish counting houses and primary schools, 
with a vocabulary of the words which constitute the body of the English 
language, with a very brief definition of each. The orthography and pro > 
nunciaOon are, according to those in my Quarto Dictionary, with some cor . 
rections. The better to present to the student the true pronunciation, the 
words are divided into, syllables, and the syllable on which the stress is laid 
is marked with an accent, or with a point over the vowel. This division of 
syllables, with the key at the top of each page, will guide the inquirer to the 
true pronunciation. 

As it is not possible to comprise all the derivative, as well as primitive 
words, with all technical terms, in a book so small as to accommodate the 
common people of this country, the more difficult and uncommon technical 
words are omitted, as are some of the participles of verbs, which are regu<f 
lar in their formation. Those which are irregular, or not of easy formation, 
are inserted. 

The anomalous sounds of the vowels are designated by points, ox marks, as 
are certain distinctions in the use of the consonants. The unaccented 
vowels nr>> left without any directions for the pronunciation ; as it is not easy, 
or even possible, to express on paper the nice distinctions which the ear 
recognizes in a rapid enunciation of slight sounds. The true pronunciation 
of such vowels is best caught by the ear ; and it is deemed worse than use. 
less to encumber words with a multiplicity of marks or figures. The un- 
accented vowels are mostly short, and if they have their long sound, it is 
slightly pronounced. 

Differences in orthography and pronunciation, which amount to thou, 
sands in the English books, present to the lexicographer, difficulties and 
perplexities, which no other person can duly^stimaie. Many of the discre- 
pancies are evidently owing to mere negligence in the authors, who have 


u PREFACfi. 

followed local usage or particular authorities, without observing the settled 
analogies of the language. Such errors as appear clearly to have pro- 
ceeded from such negligence, I have corrected. In other cases, there is 
no analogy by which doubts can be removed ; and the English books differ 
so much that they furnish no rule of decision. Hence it follows necessa- 
rily that my own decisions must clash with some of them ; but I have at- 
tempted, in all cases, to bring words, as much as possible, under the con- 
trol of well established principles. 

While I was engaged in writing the Quarto Dictionary and in the supervision 
of the press, I was so much occupied with the more difficult departments 
of the work, the etymologies and definitions, that some errors in orthogra- 
phy escaped observation, which an exclusive attention to that subject 
would have prevented. These I have corrected ; and a further considera- 
tion of some points, has induced me to make a few alterations. Hence 
some discrepancies will be found between that work and this. Other dis- 
crepancies will appear between this work and the octavo edition, some of 
which I should have prevented, if I had been able to superintend the prepa- 
ration of the copy for the press. But the number of these I am not able to 
ascertain; as it is not probable that I shall ever again read the whole of 
that or of the quarto edition. My intense and long continued labors ren- 
der repose essential to my health and comfort, during the short period of life 
which remains. 

But the reader is informed that wherever discrepancies appear between this 
work and the larger ones, this duodecimo volume, my last work, all written 
and corrected by myself, is to be considered as containing the pointing, or- 
thography, and pronunciation which I most approve. 

The general rule which I have observed in settling the orthography of 
ceitain classes of words, is Uniformity in words of like formation ; that is, a 
rule without an exception; for exceptions give to learners more trouble than 


1. Favor, candor, ardor, labor, color, clamor, parlor, error, tenor, honor, 
splendor, rigor, armor, vigor, vapor, valor, inferior, superior, 6rc, and the 

Digitized by CjOOQLC 


derivatives in the same manner without u, that the pupil need not be 
troubled with the u in labour, and the omission of it in laborious; ti in in* 
feriour, and not in inferiority, &c. 

2. Music, public, cubic, and all similar words from the Greek and Latin, 
and some formed in analogy with them, without k. Most of these admit the 
terminations, oZ, and ally; as musical, musically ; and it is inconvenient to 
add k to the primitive word, musick, and be obliged to omit it in musical. 
Besides, the mark used in my books on c, when it has the use of fc, super- 
sedes the necessity of k. 

Exceptions. — Words which may be used as verbs, retain &, on account 
of the past tense and participles ; as traffick, trafficked ; frolick, frolicking* 

Words of Teutonic and Gothic origin, having never lost k, and not ad- 
mitting an additional syllable, retain k ; as hemlock, fetlock, wedlock. 
Monosyllables are also excepted ; as sick, lick, lock ; most of which may 
be used as verbs. 

3. Defense, expense, offense, pretense, recompense, with*; not .solely 
because the Latin originals have «, but because the derivatives, defensive, 
expensive, offensive, pretension, recompensing, must be written with *• 

4. Blamable, abatable, debatable, movable, ratable, salable, reconcila- 
ble, and all similar words without e, except after e and g ; as noticeable 

5. Befall, miscall, install, recall, forestall, enthrall, retain the U ; for if one 
2 is omitted in the primitive word, it must be restored in the participles, be* 
falling, dec. ; and it is a general rule in the language, that a before J7, has 
its broad sound ; (mall and shall excepted.) Hence, if written befal, mis. 
cal, the pronunciation may be easily mistaken. For this reason U should 
■be retained in the nouns installment, inthrallment. 

6. Foretell, distill, instill, fulfill, retain U in the primitive, for it must be 
retained in the participles and other derivatives ; as foretelling, distiller, 
4ec In this case the pupil has only to learn that the spelling of the original 
wordsy tell, still, fill, is retained in all the derivatives* 

7. Connection, deflection, inflection, reflection, follow the spelling of the 
verbs, connect, deflect, inflect, reflect. Complex and reflex are considered 
as the primitives of a different analogy, and the common spelling is retained

8. All verbs, formed from the Latin and Greek tzo, and others formed 
in analogy with them, are written with the termination ixe , as generalise, 
legalize, moralize. See the Elementary Spelling Book, SeeU 137, 188. This 
termination and ism, never change the accent of the original word. 

Words directly from the French priser, and others from the French, gene* 
rally retain the letter 8 ; as surprise, enterprise, comprise, devise, revise, 

9. When verbs ef two or more syllables, end in a single unaccented 
consonant, preceded by a single vowel, the final consonant is not doubled 
in the derivatives. Thus we should write appareled, canceled, caviling 
eaviler, duelist, libeled, libelous, equaled, rivaled, traveler, traveling, quar 
reling, dec. See a list of these verbs in the Elementary SpdMng Book 
SecL 149. 

This rule, always admitted to be just, has been violated, probably from 
mere heedlessness ; there being no more propriety in doubling the coneo« 
nant in caviling, libeling, than in limiting, pardoning, delivering. 

Dull, skill, will, full, dec. retain U in all their derivatives, to prevent the 
inconvenience of exceptions to a rule. I see no reason for omitting one I 
in dullness, fullness, skillful, willful, which would not require the omission 
of one e in blissful, distressful. 

The orthography of dispatch, instructor, visitor, which Johnson altered 
without any good reason-, not only in opposition to the practice of all that 
cluster of distinguished authors who adorned the beginning of the last cen. 
fury, but in contradiction of his own practice, in some of his writings, has 
been restored. 

The orthography of a few words, the etymology of which has been mis* 
taken, as furlow, chimist, melasses, mold, cigar, redout, redoutable, con. 
troller, and a few others, has been corrected. The usual orthography is 
palpably erroneous. 

In many words which belong to no class, and which are differently writ- 
ten in our books, I have adopted the orthography which is most simple, or 
■aost agreeable to the etymology or to the pronunciation. 

New Haven, Dec. 1829.

^Tnis mark ( always indicates the accented syllable. When it is placed immediately after a 
jewel, that vowel has its first or long sound ; thus, hatred, meter, bri'er, holy, hu'man, decry'. 
This sound is also designated by a horizontal mark over the vowel, thus : f ftce, mfite, Ice, cold, 

When the mark of accent follows a consonant, the preceding vowel, if single, and not pointed, 
is short ; as in ab'sent, defend', predict', alledg'e, convuls'e. 

When the accent is placed after, or in a syllable that contains a pointed vowel, or a diphthong, 
that vowel or diphthong has its proper sound ; as in debar', rembv'e, adjoin', annoy', avow*, 
abound', rejoice. 

The vowel e, at the end of a word, forms no syllable in any word of English origin ; but when 
it follows a consonant preceded by a single vowel, it indicates that vowel to be long, as in late, 
mete, note, tune, gyve. When it follows two or mora consonants, the vowel of that syllable, it 
unpointed, is usually short, as in abridge, lodge. 

A double accent before ci and ft, indicates that these letters are pronounced like aft, and close 
the syllable ; thus, vicious, factitious, ini"tial, are pronounced vish'ous, factiah'ous, mish'al. 

When a word of more syllubles than one has a pointed vowel, and no mark of accent, the 
pointed vowel designates the accented syllable. Some words, mostly compounds, have two syl- 
lables with pointed vowels ; in which case there is little difference of accent. 

When of two vowels together, one only is pointed, that has the sound indicated by the point, 
and the other is mute ; as course, braid, hoarse, fruit, allay, flow. 

The digraphs ee, eo, s», te, when neither vowel is pointed, have the sound of e long—a* and qy, 
the sound of a long, and oo, that of o long. 

Letters in the italic character are silent. 

The letter* * h are never pronounced, except in a few words' which are noted in their place. 

In all words beginning with tea, the k precedes w in pronunciation, except in a few words 
which are noted in their place. 

Hafter r is always silent, as in rhetoric. 

G snd K before n are always silent, as in gnat, know. 

I afar I has usually a liquid sound, like y m alien, pronounced cHyen 

W before r is mute, as in wrest, pronounced rest. 

E final in the terminations, dlf.fie. gle, Afe, pfe, tie, zU, is silent. 

The combinations ce, ci, ti beforea vowel are usually pronounced as aft; as hi cetaceous, gra- 
cious, ingratiate, pronounced cetaenu*, grashus, ingrashate. It is said in some English books, 
that,m many such words, cor t alone has tit* sound of sa, and therefore ingratiate is to be pro- 
aoanced ingrasheate. This is a great mistake'-, it is the combination of c or t with the following 
vowel, that forma the sound of «*,• snd the measure of English verse, in all the best Engush 
peetqr, requires this combination to he thus pronounced. 

! * 


The sound of a before r, is that of erf; as in mars, parent, prepare. 

The combination turn usually forms a tingle syllable, pronounced tkm or a***, as in motion, 

^he combination turn forma in like manner, a single syllable, pronounced attm, an in confes- 
■on But after a vowel, it it ueaaUy pronounced zJum, as in fusion, contusion. A few exceptions 
10 these rules are noted in their place ; as Is the pronunciation of the combinations tier, tier. 

Pn have the sound of jf, as in philosophy, pronounced filosofy. 

P before f is mute, as in psalm, psalter. 

C, after *, and before e, s, and y is usually silent, as in scene, science, Scythian, pronounced 
lane, rience, Sythian. Before it, c is considered as silent, as in sick, lock. 

Ou and ow, when o is not pointed, are diphthongs, and pronounced uniformly, as in sound, tow. 

The diphthongs oi and oy base their proper soond, as in join, joy. 

An and aw are digraphs, and have the sound of broad a in fall. 

Two accents between n and g, or after g t indicate that ng are pronounced with a close articula- 
tion, as in fin"ger, lon"ger. 

Ttie oronunciation of the vowel in a derivative word is usually the same as in die primitive. 
Thus, Ann being pronounced ferm, the derivatives are to be pronounced in the same meaner; aa 

or star, after the past tense or participle of a verb indicates that the final letter el 

As asterisk or star, after the past tense or participle of a verb indicates that the final letter el 
may be and usually is blended in pronunciation with the preceding syllable, the vowel e being 
dropped, as daimd for claimed. After k, p, q, s, sh, x, d is pronounced as t ; as deckt for decked, 
fee. But in derivatives, the letters ed usually form a distinct syllable. Thus, though blessed is 
pronounced blest, yet blessedness must be pronounced in three syllables; confessed may be in two 
syllables; but confessedly must be pronounced in four syllables. This rule applies also to adjectives. 

Words with this mark t are considered as unsettled in pronunciation. 

V is pronounced fu in nature, capture, and some words of similar formation; but, as no two 
writers or speakers agree in the words to which this pronunciation extends, no rale can be given 
on the subject.
